Mane 7 by DoeKitty Mane 7 by DoeKitty
-Huge exhale- OKAY SO
This is a redraw of my old The Mane Six that was done forever and a half agooo

I actually started this a little before Christmas, but after I had finished shading almost all of the ponies, my file crashed and literally deleted itself. I had just finished the recording of AJ's shading and saved everything perfectly fine. Then I went back and changed a tiny thing and saved again, but this time SAI started to freeze up and CTD'd while saving. I've had this happen before, and it just goes back to the last save so I thought I was okay, but this time the file literally just disappeared. I looked everywhere and it was just gone. It just stopped existing.
I broke down completely because of this, and could not work on this again for a long time because I was just so shattered and pretty much lost every shred of will to live or draw or do anything anymore.

Fortunately, I had saved an earlier version that was a flattened image, but not all of the ponies were shaded. What I had to do was entirely re-ink and color the last ponies, and then shade them and color their lineart and stuff. I wasn't able to rearrange them or edit their colors or anything anymore, though, because everything is saved on a flat canvas, so where they were had to be permanent. I can't even add a background. sighh

ANYWAYYY
I'm happy with how it came out, though, despite being unable to arrange them better o:
This took soooo long, but I'm happy it's done. It was going to be a 10k speedpaint, but I guess it's too late for that now...
I hope you like it!

i just realized that some of the ponies like rainbow dash and pinkie pie have the same facial expressions as the ones you put on your icons of them haha! ^^

I actually love how they're arranged, as it reminded me of Twilight's cutie mark from the end of Season 3, with the extra star.
I have an idea for how you could add a background. You know the program called GIMP?

DoeKitty Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you o: it does kind of resemblethe that, doesn't it lol
I was just hoping to moved them into slightly better positions, like closer or further from each other.
I have heard of GIMP. I might go back in later and try some things for a background, but I guess we'll see what happens lol

That's one very unpleasant thing to see. Starlight is not a fucking replacement for Spike.

Is the show about friendship or just ponies?

This came out fantastically! I am sorry for the woes that you had to go through to bring it to life. It is my experience with computers that it is not a question of if they will fail, but when. Great job! :thumbsup: :D
